Year 5 – Potions

Hello year 5!

This term we have talked a lot about wizards, magic and potions so we thought you might like to have a go at making a potion too. Miss Harris has recorded a tutorial on how to make a fizzy, foaming potion.









You will need the following items and to watch the video on the Sway –

  • A plastic cup or glass (a clear one is best so you can see what is happening!)
  • Bicarbonate of soda
  • Washing Up Liquid
  • Vinegar (lemon juice works just as well if you don’t want to use vinegar)
  • Food colouring – this is optional
  • Something to mix your food colouring with – I used a straw but the handle of a wooden spoon would work well (just bare in mind that if you use food colouring it might stain the spoon!)

Happy potion making!
